Are there any books that you would recommend on Catholic moral theology that are not single issue, but give a good analysis overall?
I have looked at reviews online and most have some criticism related to unorthodox views of the author or they have made comments contrary to the Church in some way.
What are the good books out there that provide a good grasp on the topic ?
( Yes, I know about the Bible, the CCC, and the papal encyclicals !)
This book isn’t Catholic, but it’s a very serious work on ethics and morality, and comes Highly recommended:
**A Code of Jewish Ethics **
by Joseph Rabbi Telushkin
available at Amazon
Click the link at Dennis recommends - It’s easier
Ignatitus Press has the Summa Theologica ($155 in Softcover - 5 volumes)
International Catholic University has Distance learning/online couses available:
The two lists above contain courses that should be able to give you a thorough grounding in Moral Theology. If you review the coursework, you should be able to arrive at one or two that will provide you with a systematic approach to moral questions…
If you can only take one, try the one from Dr. John Haas - Introduction to Moral Theology It’s on both lists.
I hope this helps.
